From the outside, the building looked interesting with its historic architecture. But once inside, nothing much. Just a few shops on the ground floor, the entire 2nd floor was filled with textile shops with no customers. The 3rd floor was a deserted restaurant that looked...More

Slightly disappointing. Beautiful historic building that is sadly underused. Tourist shops on bottom. Fabric on next level (so if you want to buy fabric I suppose that's good) On the top a restaurant that looked like a wedding venue serving Sunday Brunch.

Lovely desserts on the main road. Descriptions are written in English which helps a lot. So tasty it's a must try!

This is an old building that is now a shopping arcade. Its got some historical importance as an old market place for Hong Kong. Not much happens there except restaurants and clothing material suppliers.

We visited it in the morning around 10 am. There wasn't much happening. Some silk shops, not much more. We went to the second floor with the dinning tables. We played the piano for a short song, which probably was not allowed, but somewhat fun....More

Sheung Wan
Unlike most of Hong Kong’s other popular districts,
Sheung Wan welcomes wanderers with an easy-going,
relaxed atmosphere. Art galleries are plentiful and
boutique cafés are tucked away in every side street in
the sub district known as “PoHo.” Browse through the
vintage clothing and handmade leather goods stores –
it’s no surprise fashionistas flock to this area.
